where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Hello! I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes around 1 week ago about the same time I found out I was pregnant. I'm kind of at a loss right now.

Thank you for your words of encouragement! I've just been feeling super down lately. I felt that the diagnosis took away the****of the pregnancy. We waited 9 years for this miracle and then to be confronted with this issue was just a real shock! I'm trying to be more positive! Thanks guys!

Welcome and congrats! Did they not think it was gestational? I'm type 1 but feel free to message me if you have any questions! I've just had my 3rd bubba :)

No, they said there was no question of it being gestational. My A1C was 9.7 and they suspect I had been borderline for a while and the pregnancy put me overboard
